2013 Post Thanksgiving Reality: Communists in Washington

By Douglas V. Gibbs

As the Democrats use Socialism to move us towards tyranny, we are reminded that the very idea behind the First Thanksgiving in the Colonies was that they survived because of moving away from such communal political philosophies.  While using a communal central store system, much like today's entitlement programs and identical to Marxist philosophies, was in place, the colonists starved, and died.  When the communal system was done away with, and replaced with a system that resembles today's free market system, and the colonies prospered as a result, it inspired them to give thanks to God for the prosperity.  The prosperity, after such a disastrous beginning, was due to a capitalistic system where colonists were given a parcel of land, and were told they could keep what they produced, and bring to market any excess.  In other words, a system exactly like today's free market system of capitalism is what led to the success of the American Colonies, and ultimately the success of the fledgling United States of America.

Now, the statists in Washington, primarily of the Democrat Party persuasion, but definitely including many members of the GOP too, are trying to move us back to the failed communal system our forefathers were so happy, and wise, to discard.  In fact, after a couple hundred years of manipulation and subverting the Constitution, the system of communal collectivism is largely in place.  We are only a hiccup away from failed European Socialism, and failed Soviet Communism.

It doesn't matter what the label is.  They are all the same.  We can call them liberals, progressives, statists, socialists, or communists.  It is all the same.  Same crap, different name.  Personally, I would just rather call them all "Commie Bastards."  That would make President Barack Obama the king of the Commie Bastards.

Writer Robert A. Heinlein, who was very critical of political systems in general, put it this way:

Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. - Robert A. Heinlein

So the question is, do you want a few elitist rulers to control the many?  Or do you believe we should remain free with our choices, our liberty, and our rights?

The current form of government in America was created to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, while also standing the test of time. It was designed to not be easily infiltrated by tyranny, and for any change in the law of the land to be difficult and arduous.  After the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, the forces of collectivism (a.k.a. commie bastards) with their schemes of leveling (redistribution of wealth) and utopianism (communism) attacked the new system immediately.  Alexander Hamilton introduced "Implied Law" and John Marshall introduced "Judicial Review," which were tools that would help the statists subvert the Constitution, and in the end destroy liberty with collectivistic political philosophies.

Abraham Lincoln stomped all over the Constitution in the name of "war powers."  Woodrow Wilson brought us direct taxation (16th Amendment), a loss of State representation in Congress (17th Amendment) and the Federal Reserve Act that allows private international bankers to manipulate our money through inflation, deflation, and boom-bust cycles.  Herbert Hoover kicked us into a Great Depression with his increased taxation and regulation (coupled with an onslaught of public works programs), and Franklin Delano Roosevelt extended that depression by seven years using radical versions of Hoover's policies - while also instituting socialist programs through his New Deal.  John F. Kennedy was killed for daring to stand against communism, and then his successor, Lyndon B. Johnson escalated the Vietnam War for the purpose of enlarging a crisis that enabled him to inject even more collectivism into our system - including his Great Society programs.  Richard Nixon killed the gold standard, or at least what was left of it, and Carter destroyed our economy and standing in the world.  George Herbert Walker Bush called for a New World Order of globalism, and Bill Clinton expanded upon Carter's Community Reinvestment Act which eventually led to the collapse of the housing industry during that final years of George W. Bush's presidency (and never mind that the Republicans warned of a crisis with Fanny and Freddie, and the democrats blew it off, back in 2001 and 2003. . .).  And now, Barack Obama has come in as the final act to seal the deal, and give the government complete control over the lives of each and every American.  The fascism of Obama has taken communitarianism to a whole new level, opening doors for the federal government to micromanage our lives through the banking system, energy industry, and health care.

During the Bush 43 presidency the leftists convinced everyone we were in a recession with an unemployment rate below 5%.  Now they are trying to will us out of recession, and claim we are in recovery, with manipulated unemployment rates that barely scratch below 8% (the real rate is around 20%).

We are being lied to. The liberal left democrats of the political world, and the media, are feeding us a line of B.S., not because they believe it, but because they want you to believe it.

They have to. They have to try to will recovery into existence, and get you to believe that everything is wonderful as they delay Obamacare mandates, and hide true numbers that reveal we are falling apart economically.

For you to believe otherwise would be for you to realize that that liberal control over the American form of government over the last half dozen years has failed, and has failed big.

Things have never been so bad, and when any news of the failures reach the surface, the media hides it, and when they can't hide it (and they can't say it is Bush's fault anymore), they blame the Republican Party (and natural disasters).

The uninformed voters, of course, believe the propaganda, because they are (and they just haven't realized this, yet) nothing more than tools for the democrats to manipulate.

The collapse of the housing market was the result of liberal left philosophies and policy that cried out that everyone should be owning a home, now matter what it takes.  After crying about Bush's federal spending habits, under Obama the debt created by Bush looks like a pothole compared to the Grand Canyon.  We now see regulatory policies that are strangling the free market, and are designed to destroy the private sector (especially in regards to banks (largely due to Dodd-Frank), health insurance, energy use, and transportation).  Liberal left failure has also revealed itself in the tendency of Obama and his liberal buddies to bail out failed businesses, rewarding dying industries, pushing green technologies against the will of the market that also ultimately fail and go bankrupt, and shifting taxpayer dollars into the pockets of the corporations that he likes best because they have contributed to his campaigns or the connections said companies has with his accomplices.  In the days of the Founding Fathers, they called that "mercantilism."  Meanwhile, taxes are being increased against producers, and the IRS has been used to target any groups (like the TEA Party) that dare oppose the liberal left agenda.

The most blaring sign of the failure of liberalism in today's world, however, is the fluttering attempt to unconstitutionally install Obamacare. . .

The website is a joke.  The claim that you could keep your doctor was a lie.  The claim that your premiums would come down was a lie.  The complex law is a travesty.  The scary part, however, is it is a failed law by design.  The goal is not for it to succeed, but for it to fail, and take down the private industry with it, so that we are left with only one choice - the choiceless specter of Single-Payer. . . a.k.a. Socialized Medicine.

All of this failure, and a failed economy to boot, and the democrats continue to deflect criticism, deflect blame, and instill their communist agenda.

This recession belongs to Obama, and his liberal policies are making it all much, much worse.

As it says in the Bible, there is nothing new under the sun.  None of this is anything new. From the beginning of time, statists have worked to gain control over government, and for government to gain control over the people.  This mess in America began with Alexander Hamilton and John Marshall, and is now to the point where the democrats think they have turned the corner, and that this is a leftist nation.  The democrats were lying from the very beginning of the Obama administration about job creation, and economic recovery.

And they could care less about your opinion, or what you have to say on the matter.  They consider themselves to be the ruling elite.  You, according to the liberal democrats, are too stupid to understand the complexities of government, and the American Economy. They don't care what you have to say because they believe that only they, the political elite, are capable of recognizing what needs to be done, and what is best for the "common good." Besides, a centralized government can be trusted to remain benign, right?

Never mind that this group of commie bastards have even decided to embrace communitarianism - which places the welfare of the community over the welfare and freedoms of the individual. . . at all costs.

This is all by design. The liberal democrats are destroying the American System, so they can replace it with what the Founding Fathers called "utopianism" - a society where The State works to create the perfect society, even if they must force it upon the people.

Or as the French Political Philosopher, and one of the main guys behind the French Revolution, Jean Jacques Rousseau said, "People must be forced to be free."

Some may call it socialism. Some may call it statism. Others call it Marxism. They refuse to call it what it is for the critics will rise up in protest. The U.S. Congress saw it coming. In 1963 a list of 45 Communist Goals was presented by Representative Herlong.  These goals are listed below.  And as you read them, think about Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, and think about what today's democrats are doing.  Barack Obama is obviously a student of the following communist desires:

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. (Does Obama's recent United Nations dealings come to mind?)

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. (Does Obama's recent Neville Chamberlain deal with Iran come to mind?)

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. (Does recent arms talks with Russia come to mind?)

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. (Which is why everything seems to be "Made in China")

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. (Obama's "flexibility" with Russia has been apparent, loans to countries like Vietnam a norm)

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. (Common policy, now)

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. (Happened)

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. (UN influence on a united Germany is huge)

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. (Happens, testing has ceased)

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. (Collapse of Soviet Union changed this, but communist countries now not only are represented, but hold key positions, such as on Human Rights Commission)

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) (Obama ran to the UN over Libya, and is constantly touting the need to use the UN for international issues.  Globalism is also constantly commented as a necessity by today's liberal left democrats - as well as many republicans)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. (The Communist Party in America is no longer necessary, for the Democrat Party has adopted all of the Communist Party's platform.  Obama has proven to be a radical in this particular agenda.)

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.  (The current attack on the Pledge of Allegiance is evidence of this)

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. (Cooperation in full swing)

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.  (Democrat Party is completely captured, and the GOP is mostly captured).

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  (Under Obama, any opposition to his policies are considered racist, and a violation of civil rights.  The courts call these things economic justice, social justice, etc.  The courts have been used to overturn State laws and State Constitution amendments, i.e. California's Proposition 8 - to weaken the family institution of marriage, and has allowed Obamacare to remain intact in the name of the civil right of health care)

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks. (Common Core is the latest tool for this one.  Next will be the attempt to eliminate all homeschooling and private schools)

18. Gain control of all student newspapers. (all media, except a few independent outlets, are under liberal left/communist control. Obama's attempt to regulate the Internet is an attempt to further their grip on news)

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. (SEIU has jumped into this circle, as has other liberal groups)

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. (done - and the media acts as a propaganda arm for the Obama administration)

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. (also done)

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms." (Deconstructionism also fits into this, as well as tasteless "art" such as pornography in mainstream films, communist philosophies depicted in art, anti-Christian concepts, etc.)

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art." (done)

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press. (A new mainstream move called "Nymphomaniac" with well known Hollywood stars is about to hit the circuit, filled with pornographic scenes.  Sex on television has now reached a level of soft porn.  Miley Cyrus has been the poster girl for this communist goal, because the system has taught her to be this way - and the younger generation eats it up, because they have been taught to accept it.)

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. (done.  See above)

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy." (Gay Marriage was just the start.  In California it is law that teachers must teach homosexuality as "normal, natural, and healthy."  Anybody who says otherwise about homosexuality is labeled as being a "homophobe.")

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch." (The rise of Chrislam - a hybridization of Islam and Christianity, has emerged.  Some religions are now accepting gay ministers.  Christianity is under constant persecution, and has even been mocked by President Barack Obama.  Obamacare has also sought to force Christian institutions to promote promiscuity by mandating that their insurance plans include coverage for birth control and the abortion pill.  Christian companies are being sued for refusing to "bake cakes for gay weddings," refusing to "photograph gay weddings," and so forth.)

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."  (Under Obama the extremes of this goal include the requirement at some schools and colleges that crucifix necklaces be hidden, or removed.)

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. (In recent years the shouts by the left that the Constitution is antiquated has increased.)

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man." (Today's Democrats use deconstructionism to discount the Founding Fathers, considering them to be white, rich aristocrats that created the United States in the form they did to protect their power and riches.  Thomas Jefferson has been a particular target.)

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. (Revisionist history is currently being taught in our schools, portraying the Americans in history as being genocidal against Native American populations, rich white slave owners that craved only power, and President Obama has even injected the ridiculous idea that Muslims were a strong part of this nation's founding.  Common Core has changed American history, and calls this nation but a small part of the big picture of the global community.)

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. (constant increase in each of this concepts, with a particular emphasis on education.  The concepts of "diversity" and "multiculturalism" have given the communists particular leaps forward in this goal.)

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. (Obamacare is an attempt to eliminate the private sector's involvement in healthcare.  Recent laws regarding banking institutions have given more power to the government over the operation of the banking industry.  Recently, the democrats eliminated in the U.S. Senate the filibuster rule regarding nominations so as to provide less hindrance of their agenda.)

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. (Any organization critical of Obama's administration has been targeted by the IRS, among other agencies).

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. (The FBI has been herded into a minor role since the establishment of Homeland Security)

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. (done.  SEIU, in fact, has used fear tactics to support the Obama agenda).

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.  (Obamacare, banking regulations, and energy regulations are just the tip of the iceberg.  Also, under Obama, big businesses have been forced to curtail executive bonuses, and have been under fire for daring to pursue "profit."  Obama's buyout of General Motors and Chrysler is also evidence of this administration's attempt to satisfy this goal.  Obamacare will allow complete control by the government over the "big business" of health insurance.)

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].  (The "mentally challenged" rule over gun ownership is a part of this, as is the creation of Obama's civilian arm through the machinations of Obamacare funding: On page 496 of H.R. 3590 is this quote: ” (b) Assimilating Reserve Corp Officers Into the Regular Corps. . .Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve (civilian) Corps . . .shall be deemed to be commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.” Reserve and Regular Corps are military terms used to describe a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded,” says Obama in his famous Civilian Army Speech.  The IRS is also being used in this fashion, as the enforcement arm of Obamacare.)

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. (With recent shootings, and the claim that the shooters are mentally handicapped, this is a goal currently be worked on.  Included in the definition of those with mental health issues are military veterans, conservatives, and anyone else who opposes the Obama agenda.)

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. (Gay Marriage is a part of this agenda item.  Constantly in media and the entertainment industry we are being bombarded with claims that marriage is a dead institution, or that the traditional family unit is old fashioned and out of style.)

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. (Hillary Clinton's famous "It takes a village to raise a child" fits this goal perfectly.  The public school system is now offering free breakfasts to kids, and under Obama the lunch program has increased - sending the message that parents can't even be trusted to properly feed their children.  There has been a recent push to mandate pre-school in the public education system)

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems. (President Obama said in a Mexican television that the viewers should "punish your enemies")

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. (Obama's father was an anti-colonialist, and I believe Obama is as well.)

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal. (done, thanks to liberal democrat Jimmy Carter)

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.  (Repeal of the Connally reservation has been proposed.  Obama constantly hails the necessity for us to respect the World Court.  Global jurisdiction is also being initiated through Agenda 21.)

As much as everyone wants to deny it, today's American Liberals have accepted the torch. Communism did not die with the USSR. Communism is alive and well in the democrat party.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without
knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas, six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, 1948 - from an interview during the presidential campaign.

Fabulous post Doug. In turn it takes me back to the days of "our great friend Kruschev". As you quote, "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism". Well, if history was in fact the learning experience is should be, one would also remember "We will bury you! We will bury you from within".

I'm old enough to remember that particular "Commie Bastard" pounding his shoe on the table as he ranted away. Who back then actually knew or realized how prophetic those words would actually be?
